Tips for Planning Your RV Trip
Ready to plan your next RV trip? If you are a seasoned recreational vehicle owner, you know RV trips are a great way to spend time with family, on the open road, and in nature. Just don’t forget any RV repair issues before you head out.
New to the RV world? Here are a few tips for planning your next RV vacation.
The first thing you have to do before you can start any detailed planning is choose, a the very least, a general destination. Then you have to make sure your RV is in working condition. At DJ’s Auto Repair our technicians are certified in RV repair. We’ll make sure your RV is running smoothly and minimize the chances of your vacation being interrupted by a breakdown.
Before you leave, do some research online.
Like any vacation, finding the best adventures at the best prices starts with a little research. Now that you know where you want to go, look up possible RV campgrounds. Decide if you want your route to be the shortest, fastest route or the most scenic. See if there are any attractions between you and your destinations your family would enjoy.
Don’t forget to read reviews. RV owners love sharing their experiences. They will be very helpful in person and online.
Choose your campground carefully.
Location isn’t everything when it comes to finding the right campground for your RV vacation. Meet with your fellow RV trippers and make a list of which amenities are a necessity and which amenities are preferred, but could be discussed. The campground website and social media platforms might offer discounts you are eligible for.
Once you’ve found the right campground for your gang, make a reservation. Even if you are traveling in a not-so-popular time of year, it is important to make a reservation before you leave.
Have funds available in the event something goes wrong.
Accidents happen. Even a well maintained RV can hit a pothole the wrong way or take a hit from another driver. Having the extra cash to deal with unplanned maintenance issues will give you peace of mind.
Don’t forget to get insurance for your RV. It is highly recommended to insure your recreational vehicle before you begin your trip.
Don’t forget about safety.
Make sure your first-aid kit is freshly stocked. Have additional just-in-case kits on board depending on the needs of you and your passengers.
Staying safe also means keeping an eye on the weather and road conditions. Use an application. If you need access to wireless internet, make stops as necessary.
